Heck yeah! Put these on and run into a mosh pit without any fear!
Actually, it's a better idea if you use them when you're doing some gnarly DH riding. Let me tell you... I bought these along with the knee/shin pads from TLD, and I'm very thankful. I took two spills and had no injuries. Slightly sore, but for the money it's much better than introducing your arm to nature at 25-30 MPH if you take a spill.
I got a size Large and the fit is snug, (227lbs, 5'11", wear XL arm warmers - sometimes large) they didn't slip at all while I was wearing them. Putting them on, you've got to be careful as not to rush and pull them up into place, you don't want to rip the stitching of the elastic fabrics. Once in place, I didn't have to adjust them much during the day. They're very flexible and didn't cause any discomfort, but towards the end of my day I noticed the imprint of the fabric on my arms. Perhaps a little too snug? Nah man, just right in my opinion. This fit allowed for flexibility without slippage, didn't budge during impact. I think the fit was done well in order to keep the weight down and make sure they do the job of protecting your body.
You'll look like a ninja while wearing them. Ladies love it when you look like you're gonna drop down from the roof and stealth attack some mofo like a pro. Even some dude commented while I was on the lift. He said "This guys looks like he's ready to tear shhhiiii- up!"
So put your armor on and tear shhhhiiii-up!
